NFL team and charity partners to reduce military and veteran suicides … there are over 7,000 each year.

Good News Notes:

“As many 20 veterans and service members take their own lives each day, according to a recent Department of Veteran Affairs figures.”

“Those suicides partly reflect how difficult it can be to transition from a job that is so all-encompassing to civilian life.”

“Which is why the Merging Vets and Players (MVP) charity is keen to bring together combat veterans and retired professional athletes to help them adjust to life outside their professions. The organization has set up chapters in four major US cities, and the Atlanta branch is working closely with the Atlanta Falcons.”
